North Wales GSD Club

Breed: German Shepherd Dog

North Wales GSD Club Championship show

Saturday 18th August 2018

I would like to thank the commitee for inviting me to judge the first ever GSD show to hold a breed championship show in conjuntion with the Welsh Kennel Club, giving the exibitors two championship shows on the same day, and same venue.

Hopefully this is a way forward to keep our entries up and help breed clubs survive with the ever increase in show fees for exibitors and themselves. It was a pleasure to go over so many nice exibits, and i appreciated the friendly supporting manor in which you took my decisions. Thank you also to my stewards Mr Stuart Jones, and Carol Marsden for keeping things running smoothly.
